I got to try on the Backbend crops in my size today. I tried them at the Irvine store in the next size down a couple of weeks ago but SCP had my size in both the black and Heathered Wren. They are getting good reviews on the website and I can see why. They are a shorter, knee-length crop with a relaxed leg opening. I was really tempted to get a pair but I know Canada has Heathered Wren Still Crops and Shorts and I really want to get a pair of both of those. I tried on the Heathered Wren Backbends and love the soft feel of the fabric in that color so I psyched for the new Heathered Wren Still crops. The Backbends have a very flattering fit through the backside. I may have to push these towards the top of my Wish list. If only that darn money tree would start to grow in my backyard. ;-)
The SCP store had a ton of stock of the latest that's been released over the past few weeks: Bow Tee (tried it and it's fun but I'd rather buy a tank for the money), It's a Cinch Dresses, Wren Modern Racer, Split Pea and Static Tango CRBs plus lots of other CRB colors like Bold Blue, Pure Focus tanks in all colors, Deep Breath tanks in all colors, tons of Scoop Necks, tons of Power Dance tanks. They had the black Effortless Tote which I think I read some people are looking for. The men's section looked pretty large, too, but I didn't take too close a look. I can't wait to see what other new stuff they received.

I saw the new Loop de Lulu dress when I was at the South Coast Plaza store. It's an update of the Beat the Heat dress. A woman just posted some photos of it to the This Just In page and reader, Rose, also sent some photos in. Rose comments that the dress is tight in the bust and she had to size up because of it. Tube top style dresses are not my favorite so this will be a pass for me unless it comes in a cute print. I'm also reading there might be a black/black seabed version.
|Toothpaste / white|
|It has ties that you can put around your neck or under your bust|
|Thanks, Rose, for sending this!|
|Comes in Toothpaste/White and Pink Mist/Coal|
You can tie the straps behind you or bring them up for more support.

I was at the new South Coast Plaza store today (which I think will become my favorite store since it's big and a bit closer to me) and they just got in a new gym bag - the Hot Yoga Hobo bag. I've been on the lookout for a new bag that is a vertical bag (meaning I stack my stuff vertically) kind of like my Lucky bag and I think I've found it. It's got giant pockets that extend the full length of the bag in the front and back side, labeled 'Before' and 'After' to stash your gym clothes. There are three or four small pockets inside and pockets on each end for your water bottle/matt. The version in the photo is a Black Seabed print. It looks very similar to the Bon Voyage Duffle but is much more suitable size for the gym. I don't believe it has a sleeve for your laptop. I love that it has separate pockets for wet clothes because I often bring a change of pants and have a couple of dirty towels after each workout. I think this is what I will spend my $20 credit on but that seems to change with the latest arrivals. ;-)
